The Stephen Chow Sing Chi directed JOURNEY TO THE WEST: CONQUERING THE DEMONS (SAI YAU GONG MOR PIN) made over 1 billion yuan RMB in the Mainland and became Sing Yeh's directing legend. Some said that to strike the iron while it is hot, Sing Yeh is already planning the sequel SAI YAU LIT GOR. He has been rumored to play "Piggy" this time. Some even said that Lee Lik Chi who used to work frequently with Sing yeh revealed the news. Actually Sing Yeh and Lee Lik Chi have not worked with each other since SHAOLIN SOCCER, they were rumored to be at odds. Why would Lee Li Chi reveal the news? Thus Lee Lik Chi online rapidly denied that he revealed the news. He posted, "I never said that, I would never say it." Seemingly they may never work together again.
Reportedly, Sing Yeh has already begun to plan the sequel. However he still would like to focus on directing, thus he might not play "Piggy" as rumored. Investors though of course would like Sing Yeh to perform, which would guarantee the film to break box office records again; yet Sing Yeh has not been tempted and would only focus on directing.
In the sequel the journey will head to a kingdom of women. Piggy will even fight with Wen Zhang's Venerable Tang Monk for the king, which is right up Sing Yeh's love within laughter expertise.
